    Hello

    I am going to cut down on the non healthy food I eat to loose a bit weight.


    I'm not really a lover of salad type food so does anyone have any substitue food ideas.

    Thanks

    you'll be doing well if you introduce broccoli into your diet.

    also nuts and seeds like almonds, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds are really good to introduce into your diet as a substitute to snacks.

    berries such as blackberries, raspberries and blueberries have lots of antioxidants and taste great.

    Porridge, fruit, plenty of lean meats, brown rice, cous cous, peanut butter, veg to name just a few

    Whilst the rest of the ideas are good, if you want to lose weight, nuts may not be the way to go!! 100g can contain around 400 calories and 40g of fat... that's more than chocolate!

    sorry, my tips are more along the lines of healthy diet not losing weight.

    my bad.

    OP I guess cardio and smaller portion sizes wouldn't hurt. (saw on tv they buy smaller plates to help)

    what about adding herbal suppliments to aid the loss also, as well as excercise and healthy eating or should i just stick to the latter 2?

    dont go down the adios route.. not after that thread the other day.. ewww!

    Nuts contain monounsaturated fat. Nuts in moderation are great for your diet, their also a good source of protein and fibre.
    Nuts will help you feel fuller and the regular intake of good fats helps your body release its fat stores.
    Dont go overboard with them as they are very calorie dense. As long as your eating in a calorie deficet you will lose weight
